Worth it...

It had been a long day! A headachey, crabby Mama was putting a small boy to bed, when she kneeled on a toy that should have been picked up earlier. It took every last bit of strength she had to not yell.

Then about 9:16 when he should be asleep, the small boy came down the stairs to tell her that he just read 2 chapters from a Magic Treehouse Book.

It sure is hard to feel anger when your heart is filled with pride!

Thanks for the recommendation. I was thinking 9 months is too young for tot school, but maybe not!
